Like anything, preparing takes some time and thought. Start today by looking at your schedule and deciding on a time you will be able to prioritize your emergency preparedness. If you have no preference, choose Monday morning or Monday evening. (I’ve found that if you want something done, Monday is a winner). Do not become overwhelmed. It does not even require an hour. Plan at least 20 minutes to do SOMETHING each week on your preparedness. Even if you only think about it, those thoughts will eventually lead to action.
If you are too busy one week, just come back to it. Don’t let an immediate need go neglected because of your plan, but don’t let your plan always be neglected, either. Just keep coming back to it. If you do your plan even 80% of the time you will move mountains a teaspoon at a time. But, if you find it is almost never happening, reschedule: pick a different day or decide on which activities you can and will sacrifice to make this path of peace a priority.
